    It does and that's why I'm also keeping my 4s. Not to mention that the 4s is still one heck of a phone.

    That goes for all phones with KitKat
    OR u could just root your phone, which would allow you to break the restriction of using FoxFi

    Or you can wait for the google play edition. I would assume that edition would be like my Nexus 5 and come with automatic tethering. Tethering is enabled from the settings via bluetooth, usb, or wifi whether or not you have tethering on your mobile plan(which i don't).

    Just root it. I couldn't imagine not rooting it anyway where I wouldn't have AdAway installed on it.

    Does anyone know if FoxFi will work in Bluetooth Mode on the Sprint S5? I get that it won't work via WiFi mode.
